Graduate of the Month

Rachel Robertson - March 2021

Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy


I joined the Royal Navy at 19 years old to be an Aircraft Engineering Technician & 13 years later I am still currently serving. I have always been quite sporty & loved keeping fit, with Navy giving me so many opportunities to participate in & learn new sports. I am part of the Royal Navy Bobsleigh Team & a snowboard instructor; so as you can imagine, I'm no stranger to a sports massage. I just found it so fascinating and I was always asking questions about what they are doing & why they are doing it, so I knew for me it was the way to go.

How have you used your new qualification?

Shortly after completing the Level 3 Course & the Kinesiology Taping CPD, I set up my own business, Muscle Movement Therapy in Yeovil. This was all undertaken in my spare time, where I do most of my work from home, but on occasion I offer mobile treatments. I have an ever-growing client base & hopefully, when my Naval career comes to an end, I will be in a good position to take this on full time.

What did you think of the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?

After undertaking a fair amount of research looking into which course to do, I decided that the Sports Massage Academy was for me. Everything from the beginning to the end is just second to none - from the first contact I had, to attending the course tutored by Dani in Bournemouth, followed by the aftercare provided through the alumni programme. It is so refreshing to have that extra support & access to advice from experienced graduates with a wealth of knowledge, knowing that the Sports Massage Academy is there to help all their students thrive in their new career paths. I'm now really looking forward to starting my level 4 course next month!

What would you say to anyone looking to train in Sports Massage Therapy?

If you are in a position to do it, go for it - you will not regret it! Once you start your course, get as much hands-on practice as you can with family & friends. This will not only build your confidence when you graduate, but you'll feel like you're in a much better position to go ahead and start your own business. Be prepared not to know everything but continue learning as much as you can from courses, reading & other's experiences - remember it is a journey, not a destination.
